Exciting new fantasy coming from Wayne Thomas Batson & Christopher Hopper!

Fantasy. Mystery. Action. Humor. Parents, teachers, and librarians will no longer have to push kids to read-The Berinfell Prophesies will engage intermediate readers and leave them clamoring for more.

The Seven succeeding Elven Lords of Allyra were dead, lost in the Siege of Berinfell as babes. At least that's what everyone thought until tremors from a distant world known as Earth, revealed strange signs that Elven blood lived among its peoples. With a glimmer of hope in their hearts, sentinels are sent to see if the signs are true. But theirs is not a lone errand. The ruling warlord of Allyra, the Spider King, has sent his own scouts to hunt down the Seven and finish the job they failed to complete many ages ago.

Now 13-year-olds on the brink of the Age of Reckoning when their Elven gifts will be manifest, discover the unthinkable truth that their adoptive families are not their only kin. With mysterious Sentinels revealing breathtaking secrets of the past, and dark strangers haunting their every move, will the young Elf Lords find the way back to the home of their birth? Worlds and races collide as the forces of good and evil battle. Will anyone escape the Curse of the Spider King?

Powers by John B. Olson, sequel to Shade

The sequel to John B. Olson's Shade is coming this December from B&H Publishing.

Powers, continues the story...


“Bury me standing. I must be buried standing.”

Powers, the follow-up to John Olson’s Shade (“a must-read for those who enjoy Ted Dekker and Frank Peretti” —Publishers Weekly), introduces a sheltered Gypsy girl named Mariutza. Her grandfather utters a mysterious last request before dying in her arms after being shot by ten cloaked men.

Those same men die before her eyes, but strange powers continue to pursue Mari through the swamps of southern Louisiana where she has always hidden from “the Badness.”

The whole world seems to join in the chase—helicopters, soldiers, government agents, and the police are all trying to kill her. Mari’s only hope of survival is to find Jaazaniah the Prophet, the mythical hero of her grandfather’s bedtime stories. But she has never been outside the swamp or known other humans besides her grandfather and one teacher. How can this lone girl survive the bewildering world of men long enough to find a prophet who might not even exist?

Find out more and watch the trailer at the B&H Fiction website.

What's Next for Ted Dekker

With over 3.6 million novels sold to date, Thomas Nelson’s New York Times Best-selling Author, Ted Dekker is grabbing the attention of middle and high school aged students, with the Lost Book Series’ graphic and young adult novels. In completion of the series, Dekker is releasing the final two tales of what is called the CIRCLE trilogy: Lunatic and Elyon on June 2 with the graphic novels Chaos and Renegade following on June 9.

The first four volumes in the Lost Book Series, Chosen, Infidel, Renegade and Chaos have all made the CBA Best-Seller list since their release in 2008, selling more than half a million copies nationwide. Co-written by Kaci Hill, Lunatic and Elyon conclude the epic saga tales. The story line plays into the love of alternate realities with continuing suspense appealing to the same audience as those of 24, Heroes and Lost.

Wanting to reach a younger audience with the same message, Dekker created the same series illustrated through graphic novels and have sold over 50,000 copies. Combining the action from The Matrix and Indiana Jones for teens, the comics illustrate various aspects of growing up and responsibility in the context of a daring adventure.

With a completely redesigned site launched on March 20, Dekker’s official is making it easier for fans to connect with each other and the best-selling author. The site welcomes over 70,000 unique visitors everyday. An exclusive social network is available to all, which combines the features of myspace, facebook and youtube and paves the way for fans to know everything in the world of Ted Dekker.
